Carnival Season starts on the island

The carnival season is upon us once again, starting in Puerto del Rosario. About 5,000 people gathered in the 'Puerto Cabras' to watch the making of floating sculptures. The fine weather enticed the thousands of people who packed the promanade to witness the most important event of the festival. The creativity of the participants in their constructions delighted the audience who applauded because of their designs. The floats are made from various things to produce floating carnival grounds doing a tour from the capital of Fuerteventura pier and the beach of Los Pozos, using the basic principle of a ban on using mechanical propulsion systems and the requirement that participants not to rely on boats for the actual construction of the float. Founded twelve years ago the competition has become one of the most popular events of those held in Fuerteventura. For pictures of this event see Surfbum's report.
